Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of MatterHamburg
The International Max Planck Research School for Ultrafast Imaging & Structural Dynamics (IMPRS-UFAST) is a joint venture of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter, Deutsches Elektronen Synchrotron (DESY), the Universität Hamburg and the European XFEL GmbH.
The International Max Planck Research School for Ultrafast Imaging and Structural Dynamics in Hamburg, Germany, offers a structured Ph.D. program in the physics and chemistry of ultrafast phenomena.
in Ultrafast Imaging & Structural Dynamics – IMPRS-UFAST – Hamburg
Our research focuses on ultra-intense electron and x-ray sources for directly observing atomic motions during primary events, and ultrafast imaging over the relevant length and time scales to come to new levels of understanding of the interplay between structure and dynamics.
Specific areas include theoretical and experimental aspects of condensed matter and atomically resolved dynamics, fundamental light-matter interaction, accelerator-based light sources, coherent imaging, coherent controlled molecular and solid state dynamics, molecule imaging, extreme timescale spectroscopy, ultrafast optics and x-ray science, relevance and applications in chemistry, biology and medicine.
Cross-disciplinary thesis research in a vibrant, international scientific environment
Supervision and mentorship by a team of internationally renowned experts and additional support through an advisory panel state-of-the-art research facilities
Advanced training opportunities (scientific, skills, career) in English
Funding in form of contracts
We are looking for highly motivated and team oriented applicants with an excellent academic background.
Successful applicants will hold (or are about to complete) an MSc degree or an equivalent degree in physics, chemistry, Biophysics, Biochemistry, Nanoscience or related areas.
Applicants must possess a high level of proficiency in written and oral English.
The Max Planck Society is committed to employing more handicapped individuals and especially encourages them to apply. Furthermore, the Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.
